How can CBD help with some of the issues that most females are biologically forced to face?
From tackling PMS pain to minimising the impact of menopause, it seems that CBD has the power to improve the lives of females of all ages.
Here we take a look at what concerns our favourite cannabinoid can assist with.
CBD is known for its mood elevating, pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effects – all three of which are incredibly beneficial when it comes to reducing the severity of symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) each month.
CBD can help to keep mood swings at bay by lessening those unwanted feelings of irritation, hostility and depression – while at the same time reducing the bloating, cramps and discomfort that often comes as a result of menstrual pain.
A CBD product like our Pain Cream is especially useful for this purpose, as it can be applied directly to the abdomen and lower back area for targeted relief.
Endometriosis is a disorder of the female reproductive system in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus starts to grow outside of it instead – on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or intestines.
This condition affects 1 in every 10 women around the world, and so it’s great news that research has indicated that endometriosis symptoms can be eased and any abnormal growths relating to it can potentially be diminished through CBD treatment.
Yet again CBD’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties reduces the inflammation in the abdomen, back and pelvis that can be the source of severe pain.
Older women may also find CBD to be a lifesaver when it comes to the unique set of concerns they experience while going through menopause.
Insomnia, low libido, mood swings and bone density loss are all symptoms women face during this time. But luckily studies have indicated that CBD has the ability to boost sex drive, stablise mood disorders, and regulate bone mass.
Furthermore, a study in Brazil carried out by the University of Sãp Paulo showed that women can use CBD to help regulate the secretion of a stress-activating hormone called cortisol.
This is due to the overall effect of ‘homeostasis’ that CBD delivers by balancing out the various systems and processes in the body, which can be a huge help in helping to stablise mood for women of all ages due to any hormonal imbalances they may be experiencing.
A daily dose of one of our CBD oils is a great way for women to treat the symptoms of such concerns, while simultaneously improving their overall health and longevity.
